Entrepreneurs In Residence
The Civic Hall EIR program offers an unparalleled opportunity for civic innovators to foster their growth, while simultaneously strengthening Civic Hall’s membership community.
Program participants are committed to the mission of Civic Hall, building civic technology, and contributing to others in meaningful and impactful ways.
Qualified participants are looking to get a civic tech project, movement or company off the ground, and don’t currently have the financial resources to purchase a membership to Civic Hall. Special consideration is given to applicants from various populations with unique backgrounds and identities and to Military Veterans.
This program requires a 6-month commitment beginning on February 1st, 2018.
We will announce the next application cycle of the program in Fall 2018.
